Employing an informal, humorous voice, this text synthesizes the literature on the measurement of college teaching effectiveness and introduces and assesses 13 statistical methods for doing so. He provides step-by-step procedures for faculty to develop, test, and analyze scales for the methods. The methods are based on the scaling of the following sources of evidence: student ratings, peer ratings, external expert ratings, self ratings, videos, student interviews, exit/alumni ratings, employer ratings, administrator ratings, teaching scholarship, teaching awards, learning outcomes, and teaching portfolio.
